The powerfully beautiful cards are inspired by the Andean tradition of healing shared by the Q’ero Nation in Peru. It is an inspiring tool for everyone interested in shamanic ways, especially students and practitioners of Peruvian Shamanism. The intent is to enrich understanding and encourage a deeper practice. Core principles, practices and archetypes are illustrated in stunning watercolors that may evoke resonance with the chakras. Each card asks a question to help reveal opportunities for healing and suggests shamanic processes to assist in healing work. Loving, wise and kind, these cards nourish the heart, stimulate the mind and support the body. The deck comes with a gorgeous altarpiece. The informative guidebook defines all Quechua terms, expands on each card’s meaning and includes shamanic processes, ceremonies and ways to work with energy. It also speaks to how these ancient ways are relevant to a contemporary daily life.
HOW THE ANDEAN HEALING ENERGY CARDS MANIFESTED: Eileen O'Hare is a legacy carrier in the Peruvian tradition. She is a practitioner and teacher of the shamanic healing arts. Eileen received the vision for a divination deck for Peruvian Shamanism from the ancestors a number of years ago. In the spring of 2009, the stars aligned. The inspired shamanic artist, Joy Gilinsky and the soulful printer, Seymour Hall appeared in her life. They formed a powerful creative triangle. Eileen invited the lineage to funnel their sweet wisdom through her words. Joy journeyed for the images and then painted them from her heart of hearts. Seymour shepherded the creative work, putting the cards, the book and the triptych together. He also created the website. After eight months of intense creative, prayer and ceremonial work the cards were offered for the first time in Dec. 2009. It is a labor of love the creators humbly offer in honor of this most potent, sweet and deeply loving tradition. May these cards help everyone who touches them become better stewards of the personal as well as the planetary mind, heart, body and soul in these times of prophecy. May they inspire the deepening of our connection to and reverence for all life on Pachamama. We honor our teachers. We honor the ancestors. Aho. Amen. Heyaya.
